The WNC region is known across the country as a home for innovative small businesses and startups. At the same time, our area is also known for having a community of deeply creative and highly skilled people. Why is it that so many local companies have such a hard time finding great local employees, contract workers and freelancers?
There's even a term for this problem: The talent gap. Is there really a talent gap in the Asheville and WNC area? Or is the solution really just a matter of making better connections?
To find out, the WNC Kauffman Foundation Entrepreneur-in-Residence Program presents the Talent Jam Asheville, a business-focused mash-up of "speed dating, job fair and a networking event." It's a modern take on the classic job fair, where both companies and workers will present one-minute pitches of their needs or talents followed by casual networking, all while enjoying great local food and drink.
The Talent Jam, Asheville will be held at Highland Brewing Company on Monday, November 30, fro
